  1. We knew Mercedes through our niece Kathy, Mercedes son David’s wife. Mercedes was a wonderful woman who meant so much to our family. We enjoyed the many visits she would make up North to see Kathy’s parents and then visits with us and Kathy’s grandparents. We enjoyed Christmas in 2006 and a birthday celebration for David on that same day. The love and joy Mercedes had for her son and her grandson Christopher was such a beautiful thing to witness. Mercedes rest now with the angels. We will love,miss and remember you forever.

  2. Remember Me Remember me when flowers bloom Early in the spring Remember me on sunny days In the fun that summer brings Remember me in the fall As you walk through the leaves of gold And in the wintertime – remember me In the stories that are told But most of all remember Each day – right from the start I will be forever near For I live within your heart
